[FONT=&quot]The first African-American Miss Alabama called the man who shot and killed 5 Dallas police officers during a Black Lives Matter protest on Thursday a "martyr."[/FONT][FONT=&quot]Kalyn Chapman James, who was crowned in 1993, said in a tearful video on Facebook Sunday that while she doesn't want to "feel this way," she finds it difficult to be sad for the departed police officers and "can't help but feeling like the shooter was a martyr."[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]"And I know it's not the right way to feel because nobody deserves to lose their lives," she said in the two minute video. "But I'm so torn up in my heart about seeing these men, these black men, being gunned down in our community...I wasn't surprised by what the shooter did to those cops and I think a lot of us feel the same way and I know it's not right and I definitely don't condone violence against innocent people."[/FONT]

Personally, I can see why Micah Johnson was pushed to the limits of his patience and tolerance. He served in the Army, was deployed to Afghanistan, and comes home to see white police officers brutally murdering his fellow citizens of color in cold blood, with zero repercussions. While I believe that peaceful protest is the right answer, and that Johnson went too far, I truly believe that Micah Johnson in some ways was very brave, knowing that he would give his life fighting against a system which had so brutally oppressed him and his fellow people of color.

Yeah.....no.

Just no.

Or did you forget the 300,000 men who died ending slavery?

All he did was murder people and make the cause more difficult for the majority of protestors approaching things peacefully. It puts the police MORE on edge and increases the likelihood for misunderstandings in the future. He didn't do this for anyone else but himself. Just like Dillon Roth, that ass hole just wanted to go out in a blaze of glory. He was an unstable guy who wanted to die in a way that would leave people talking about him.

The 300,000 men who fought to preserve the union, not end slavery. Lincoln even said that if he could save the union without setting a single slave free, he would do it. The emancipation proclamation was nothing but a cheap ploy to get the UK and France on the side of the Union. Lincoln didn't give a damn about the wellbeing and equal rights of people of color, and it shows in the fact that he did nothing to prevent Jim Crow laws, lynchings, the KKK, or de facto slavery in the form of sharecropping.

Ah, but in the end, the institution of slavery was utterly smashed, was it not?

I don't know how you expect a dead guy to stop things that happened after he died, though.....

The Emancipation Proclamation wasn't a "cheap ploy"--- it was a message to the world.

That's quite alright.

As my signature says (minus the Milotic):
Everyone makes mistakes. It's what makes us human. :)
Tis true. Thank you. I happened upon this story, was annoyed by it, didn't see another, posted, now embarrassed. What a day.

I would save the Union. I would save it the shortest way under the Constitution. The sooner the national authority can be restored; the nearer the Union will be "the Union as it was." If there be those who would not save the Union, unless they could at the same time save slavery, I do not agree with them. If there be those who would not save the Union unless they could at the same time destroy slavery, I do not agree with them. My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and is not either to save or to destroy slavery. If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that. What I do about slavery, and the colored race, I do because I believe it helps to save the Union; and what I forbear, I forbear because I do not believe it would help to save the Union. I shall do less whenever I shall believe what I am doing hurts the cause, and I shall do more whenever I shall believe doing more will help the cause. I shall try to correct errors when shown to be errors; and I shall adopt new views so fast as they shall appear to be true views.

I have here stated my purpose according to my view of official duty; and I intend no modification of my oft-expressed personal wish that all men every where could be free.

Yours,
A. Lincoln.
Abraham Lincoln's Letter to Horace Greeley

Fail you have in understanding, honesty or debate. Have a nice day.

Just because you don't agree with what I say doesn't make it nonsense.

And please tell me how I am a "fake" socialist. I take that as a pretty big insult that you claim that my political beliefs are just some random joke I say for shyt and giggles. Just because you couldn't imagine thinking the same way that I do doesn't make me any less genuine about what ideals I hold close to my heart.

You are a fake socialist. You don't really want it, hell you don't even know what "IT" is. You looked around, realized that being a contrarian poster on a debate forum could be good for lol's, chose "Socialist!" with a picture of Mao (a mass murdering psycho) and then you choose to take the most offensive positions on any given issue and act like you're a victim when called out.

In a truly socialist country, you wouldn't have the political FREEDOM to do what you are doing now, and you don't even know that. Ergo, I stand by what I say, and laugh at your faux hurt feelings.

Here's what I want. I want true democracy, where the will of the people, not the will of the reporters on fox news and their friends in the nra and big business, rules.

I want hate speech against people of color, women, and LGBTQ individuals to be outlawed, to prevent loonies like Dylan Roof or Omar Mateen from being inspired to carry out domestic terrorism against minority groups.

I want the 32,000 gun killings each year in this country to be stopped.

I want the rape epidemic on college campuses to end.

I want a healthcare system where no patient needs to pay a single dime to get treated, a country where healthcare is a right.

I want an end to all foreign wars of aggression, and an end to police aggression against minority communities here in the usa

I want a minimum wage that a worker can raise a family on.

Above all, I want to eliminate the system of privilege which has let rich white men have inordinate powers in society, and give the power to the oppressed peoples of this country who simply want a better life and a future for their children.

Is this so evil? Is this so wrong? Why is it so upsetting to you that I want racial and economic equality in the usa, and "liberty and justice for all?"

Those are not the products of Socialism.

That pic though is.

True democracy is mob rule and ALWAYS descends into Despotism.

"I may not like what you have to say, but I will fight to the death for your right to say it" <-- True Free Speech.

The post that I first interacted with you on, totally hate speech, yet you want to outlaw hate speech. So you should outlaw yourself.

Min wage is a starting position, not a career, why do you want to doom people to min wage?

There is no "rape epidemic".

So your big list is a bunch of buzzzzzz words, phrases and slogans, very little to do with Socialism and mostly the smatterings of half truths and lies but with feelings.


Again, in a true socialist country, most of your list would not be. Thus you PROVED you are not a socialist.

Thank you. Try a new schtick friend, this one isn't working.

The empty shelves in Venezuela are a result of U.S aggression towards Venezuela, and the choice of corporations to selfishly place money and profits over the feeding and well being of their fellow man.

and he must have ignored the majority of murders of blacks killing blacks. But, you don't want to deal with that do you?

The last good Miss Anything was Vanessa Williams with her scrumptious lesbian pictorial before it was cool to be a lesbian. It was very naughty.
